First Valentine Card Using Poppystamps Inlay Heart Die

I’ve been away from card making for quite a long time.  Life became much more important to my husband and me.  We became grandparents for the first time about a month ago (6 weeks early) to twins—a boy and a girl.  We are beyond blessed!  Life certainly is good.

After being away for so long, I kind of lost my creative mojo.  My husband has been trying to get me into my craft room just to make something because he knows how much I do truly enjoy it.  So…here’s my first stab at a valentine card for 2019.

My Empty Nest Creations Valentine using Poppystamps Inlay Heart Die

I just bought this beautiful Inlay Heart die from Poppystamps, and the Messages for Every Day stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.  Poppystamps dies always cut perfectly, and the sentiments on this SSS stamp set are awesome!

I cut the die on a piece of pink Bazzill card stock (sorry, I don’t know the color name), and then cut it again using a piece of patterned paper from the 6×6 Front Porch paper pad from Pebbles, Inc.  I added a strip of the same patterned paper to the bottom of the pink piece and adhered it to an A2 white card base made from Neenah Solar White #110 card stock.  I placed the single patterned paper heart into the space on the inlayed heart and glued it down.

All that was left was to pick the right sentiment.  As I said before, this stamp set has an incredible selection of greetings.  There were 3 or 4 that would have worked, but I settled on the “I love you so much!” and white heat embossed it onto a piece of dark brown scrap paper that matched the striped paper I used for the heart.  I attached the sentiment strip using foam tape to give it some dimension.

I hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by 🙂
